Dear everyone else: Please stop. Thanks.
Sorry, someone had to do it. I bet I'm not the only one.
What about the sheepdog in 'Babe'?
Let's amend it to 'People who can just about get away with using "babe" when addressing someone whose given name is not Babe, with a one-song exemption for Sonny and Cher'.
Excited about The dark Knight?!
I've never been to the Imax before.
It's going to be wonderful.
Chrissie Hynde and Ali Campbell.
It's a bit rubbish but I remember listening to it on loop as a very small child.
I watched Babe for the first time in aaaaaged at easter. It's a great film.
I never saw pig in the city. Was it any good?

'My husband is a cunt, this marriage is a sham and I'm going to take my own life.'

Thinking about it, he doesn't call anyone babe, he just talks about the babe.
Sorry cupcake, my bad.
and I think one of the reasons is that every time I see or hear someone quoting that bit, it makes me shudder.
or was it Sonny & Cher?
lots of people say it.
I've another friend who can't get away with it but still says it anyway. He's Australian too.
I sense a pattern.
i don't think it's part of my vernacular... i hope not.
Not really my scene. Can't quite picture you saying it either! :)
you fisher price journalist (see what I did there? Ok, bye)
but it didn't pay off.
"Elaborate" and "laboured" are not synonyms.
Wayne and Garth don't actually call anyone "babe", do they? Describing someone as a babe is different.
Yeah, I’ll allow it. Which means whoever did the original also gets a free pass.
for one afternoon during the 4th grade he was leaving his house to go to baseball practice, when some menacing 5th graders walked passed, as fortune would have it, George's mum waved him off exclaiming "hit 'em for 6, Babe" oh how the 5th graders pounced on this. the next few weeks were awash with ridicule for poor old George until one day he found a magic glowing aluminum bat hidden behind a small knowl at the edge of the dugout. Legend has it that a voice appeared in George’s head (although sceptics have written this bit off as mere tattletaling as it has been frequently proved that voices cannot and must not take physical form, so for one to appear simply would destroy everything that a good atheist has ever stood for. It is worth noting for the purposes of this being factual, that atheists are sceptics) the voice said to have said that when used, the bat will have a really good sweet spot, so if you get good enough at timing your swing, you’ll hit some homers. With that, Babe as the 5th graders were still calling him, just to remind you, went out in the next game and lo and behold he played a good game there, and was heard to mutter to one of the 5th graders, who he was probably playing against, “babe that!” and so a legend was born.
…he was a bowler wasn’t he?
i think he fielded at square leg
